readings for 2010

OK, I'm posting the books I've read in 2010. Remember that these are the titles I would want any stranger browsing the internet to see that I've read; they may or may not be the titles I've actually finished this year. For that list, send legal currency that is not too difficult to exchange. Thanks.

The Lazarus Project by Aleksandar Hemon
Last Night at the Lobster by Stewart O'Nan
Running Away (Fuir) by Jean-Philippe Toussaint
Ham on Rye by Charles Bukowski
Post Office by Charles Bukowski (first time I've read a novel by Bukowski)
Home Land by Sam Lipsyte (exaggerated claim: best ever loser-guy suburban angst available in paperback)
Inherent Vice by Thomas Pynchon (I finally finish my first new Pynchon novel since Vineland; liked the idea of Doc Sportello but it was hard to turn pages at times)
Women by Charles Bukowski
Factotum by Charles Bukowski (in progress)
Lost Cosmonaut: Observations of an Anti-Tourist by Daniel Kalder (in progress and it's great!)
These Shining Lives by Melanie Marnich (a rather touching play about exploited workers in the 1920s and '30s)
